Trin's New Dress

Here is a dress I finished for Trin last night. It's a really cute little dress. She picked out her fabric and keeps wanting to know when it will be finished.


I appliqued some flowers on it then hand embroidered the stems. This was my first time hand embroidering and I must say that it can be addicting. I really hope to learn more hand embroidery in the future.


Here are "tucks" that are at the bottom of her dress.



And finally just a pic of the back.

Now I just have to finish all the other projects on my list. I need to start getting diapers made. I bought some flannel to start making some fitteds, but it's so cute I might make Trin some pajama bottoms. I need to start knitting soakers. I got a good pattern I think so hopefully in the next few days I will start on my first soaker. I have a baby quilt I need to get finished as a baby gift. Plus all the extra fun things that I just want to do.
